“Think about it for a moment and you know that as an ego – even as a strong ego, as a creative ego – you will not achieve anything if you don’t invite others in.”

In 032c Issue 36, our dossier examines WORKING OUT LOUD: a strategy for a better career and life, plucked from the cutting edge of corporate management theory and appropriated for creative practice. Rapper PLAYBOI CARTI opens up his process - and his wardrobe - to photographer RENELL MEDRANO. BEATRIZ COLOMINA digs up the kinks and perversions of the BAUHAUS for a eulogy 100 years after its birth. A spooked out CHARLIE FOX writes a suicide note from the home of eternal misanthrope THOMAS BERNHARD. HELENE HEGEMANN heads to Paris to speak to author VIRGINIE DESPENTES, who loves her dog, but hates most people. German sociologist HEINZ BUDE calls for new forms of solidarity as the only tonic for embitterment. Food writer turned reluctant psychonaut MICHAEL POLLAN smokes the hallucinogenic venom of a Sonoran Desert Toad. STERLING RUBY reveals his first ready-to-wear collection, and ELI RUSSELL LINNETZ celebrates the occasion by turning the artist’s LA studio into a Roman coliseum. MARTINE ROSE questions the existence of time in an east London café, and photographers SHARNA OSBORNE, OLIVER HADLEE PEARCH, and HEJI SHIN capture the British designer’s menswear genius in three acts. In three stories styled by 032c fashion director MARC GOEHRING, JONAS LINDSTROEM sets fire to the Burberry trench in a cinematic feature starring NYARACH AYUEL, model IRINA SHAYK bares her teeth to HUGO COMTE, and MALGOSIA BELA gets 3D printed by THOMAS LOHR.

Wolfgang Tillmans

Wolfgang Tillmans, (born August 16, 1968, Remscheid, West Germany), German photographer whose images of the everyday span from street photography to portraiture to landscape and still life to abstraction. In 2000 he became the first non-British artist to win the Turner Prize, and he was a recipient of the Hasselblad Award in 2015. Tillmans first experimented with photography in 1987 by enlarging found photographs with a photocopier. He bought his first camera the following year. In the late 1980s he immersed himself in the club scene and gay nightlife in Hamburg and began taking pictures at that time. He submitted those photographs to the British magazine of fashion and contemporary culture i-D, which published them. He continued to publish his work in that magazine into the 21st century. In 1990 he moved to Bournemouth, England, to study art for two years at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design. He settled in London in 1992 and the next year exhibited an unframed photograph from his Lutz & Alex series—casual portraits of two decidedly androgynous friends—at Unfair, an art fair in Cologne for emerging artists. As a result of that exhibition, his career took off in Europe. Art book publisher Taschen produced a book of his work in 1993, and Tillmans began exhibiting frequently. He also found success in New York City and exhibited widely while living there in 1994–95 and onward. He continued to rely on i-D and other magazines, however, as a regular venue for his work. In 1997 Tillmans created a now well-known series of seemingly mundane images documenting the last month in the life of his partner, Jochen Klein, who died of AIDS. Following Klein’s death, which had a notable impact on the photographer, Tillmans’s work gained a stronger political angle, and he became a more vocal advocate for the LGBTQ communities. His was the winning design for an AIDS memorial in Munich (installed 2002).
